Research Interests

The primary focus of my laboratory is directed towards understanding the mechanisms underlying the involvement of immunoglobulin Fc (GM) and Fcgamma receptor genes in immunity to various malignant and infectious diseases.  These studies are supported in part by grants and contracts from the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense.
